Hi everybody! My name is Cujo but I prefer Jo or Jo Jo. I’m a mix breed from Northern Alberta. I’ve been told my profile pic makes me look much bigger than I actually am, but I’m only about 50 lbs! There’s some speculation as to how old I am, but my Foster Parents seem to think I’m just getting into middle age because I’m pretty mellow and though the zoomies still come, they’re not as frequent or last as long as they once did and I like a good nap!
I’m a very sweet boy with a happy disposition and medium energy needs. You may have heard about my injuries but don’t worry! They’re healing great and don’t even look half as bad as they initially did! I can eat and drink fine and my leg has healed up really good as well – the only lasting effects are a slight limp and some cosmetic scarring. I should probably think about monitoring my activity levels with the limp and we can probably expect some arthritis or other type of general soreness in the leg to develop, but other than that, no problems!
Some other info about me that could be helpful: I’m good with my Foster Sisters for sure but not sure about other boy dogs as there’s none here. I could get along in a multi dog house but I’m kinda all about JoJo, so being an only dog, at least to start, would be best. I’m ok with my foster cat bro and sis but do enjoy harassing them if I feel like starting a little action. I’m ok in the car. There’s no such thing as Strangers, only potential new best friends!
May 13 update…Update on CUJO, the handsome senior dog! Sadly after being mauled with extensive damage to his face and inside of his mouth, Cujo is back at the vet clinic and will need to stay there for a while. The veterinary team had hoped that after treating all his injuries and doing some dental work that he would heal up nicely. However, the damage is so bad that the tissue has started to die and will need to be removed. This is very common in attacks like this. We remain committed to Cujo. This very lovely senior is one happy guy despite his misfortune!! www.scarscare.ca/donate
May 8 Cujo UPDATE!! He is doing great! His mouth and face are full of stitches but he’s recovering. He will be on a mush food for awhile, he’s happy and still wags his tail.
Thanks for all the kind words, donation and support. He is not available for adoption at this time but please keep a keen eye on the website!
*Graphic Images Ahead* On May 2, 2022, we told you about two urgent rescues. This is an update on the dog that had been seriously injured by another dog. We have since learned this handsome senior’s name is CUJO. He came is yesterday after being mauled by another dog. Last night the focus was to stabilize him on fluids, pain killers and antibiotics. Today he was stable enough to have surgery to clean and close up some of his wounds. His mouth inside and outside where the worst. Including broken teeth. Thank you Athabasca vet and staff for taking such good care of this sweet guy.
